Using past international cooperation to rethink development: alternative critical approaches

Using past international cooperation to rethink development: alternative critical approaches

Publication date:
Rafael Domínguez and Simone Lucatello (coords.)

As the historical perspective is missing from most publications on Development Studies and International Cooperation, issue 120 of Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals prioritises alternative critical approaches and a historical review of this subject, which has traditionally been addressed using the technocratic orientation of problem-solving and the neoinstitutionalist theory of interdependence. A set of works offering original empirical, comparative and/or theoretical contributions is therefore presented here. Taking a historical perspective they analyse the international regime governed by the OECD's Development Assistance Committee (DAC), cooperation between developing countries (or South-South cooperation), between developing courtiers and the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, and China’s construction of an alternative international cooperation regime.
